Kirk H.

Honolulu, HI, United States

Aloha! I am an avid kayaker, hiker, and cyclist, as well as being one of the top rated guides on ToursByLocals.

My family relocated to Hawai'i over 30 years ago and I am a student of Hawaiian history and culture. Most importantly, I have a passion for sharing my intimate and local knowledge of O'ahu with travelers and I pride myself on providing my guests with a unique, educational, and entertaining experience.

I joined ToursByLocals over 6 years ago offering eclectic tours of Honolulu's Chinatown, State Capitol District, and historic sites in Waikiki.

Due to the popularity and high ratings of my eclectic tours, I am now offering tours which cover every corner of the island of O'ahu, including the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites, State Capitol Historic District, Windward O'ahu, Southeast Coast, and of course, the island's fabled North Shore.

I am a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, veteran of the United States Marine Corps, and I am fluent in Spanish. In addition, I have made several appearances in the local and national media, such as: KHON2 News, HGTV's Hawaii Life, the Star Advertiser, and the Honolulu Weekly.

I have guided over 500 tours with ToursByLocals and I have never received a substandard rating. I have led groups both small and large, in English and in Spanish. I can make great recommendations for restaurants, clubs, special events, and other fun activities all over the island of O'ahu.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to send me a message. I look forward to hearing from you!
